Subject: Mixed shows of the same title
The confusion is the last 4 episodes are some other show named Nightwatch that is a horror show, not a police drama..

I have listened to the police version a lot but never heard of the other Nightwatch.

Good show but the audio quality suffers on some because the original recording were not the greatest ..

Subject: stark realism of this show from the 50s is astounding
This actual real life 'Dragnet' radio program shows there were plenty of psychos in early 1950s suburban LA just like today. The actual sound of the traffic noise and sirens and the suspects' quavering voices as they are questioned or arrested will send chills up your spine. From suicide attempts, to crazy old ladies, to wayward mothers carousing around while their kids are left alone to fend for themselves- it gives you a good insight into daily police work as it really is.

Subject: Not Nightfall - a truly amazing real-life cop show from the 50s!
I believe the previous reviewer has this series mixed up with NIGHTFALL - this show, NIGHTWATCH, is a fascinating radio forerunner of COPS from the mid-1950s - where real police are followed and recorded. One episode involving a man who exposes himself has suprisingly adult content for radio of this period. It's really interesting to hear the real voices of the accused and the police from such a long time ago - a truly amazing time capsule! Despite being a fan of old radio for over 30 years, I have only discovered this show recently.

Subject: Great Series
This is going to be one of the better quality series you will find, because it is not OTR, well not very old OTR anyway (1980s). It's in stereo, very well recorded, and pretty gruesome and graphic. If you like horror, this is very good stuff. Forewarning: there is some really cheesy eighties synth-music in a lot of these.

Subject: unique and original
I haven't heard all of these episodes, but I can difinitively say that there was no other radio show like this. While shows like this now adays focus on shoot-outs and action, this show gave a human portrait of police work.
The only problem, and this has nothing to do with the shows themselves, is that this show doesn't have the old time radio tag. Because of this it took me weeks to find this.
